Not exactly bare metal when you've got UEFI in there.

In the embedded world, Bare Metal means you control the first byte executed by the CPU when it comes out of POST, and aren't using any kind of operating system or proxy loader in between. But it gets kinda fuzzy, because RToS is still "bare metal" and you have full access to the source-code.






That's not really bare metal either. You should be directly manipulating the electrons flowing through the material :)

Nah, electrons aren't quite full bare metal either. Mechanical computing gives you real bare metal!

Can't have metal w/o electrons. :)
